It shouldn't be all that surprising the team 23-games over .500 beat the team 14-games under .500.

The Pirates broke open a fairly close game in the seventh inning. Up 3-1 Pittsburgh scored five runs to put this one out of reach. A.J. Burnett (6-8) pitched seven innings for the win. Tyson Ross was not in command of any of his pitches but gutted it out for six-plus innings for the Padres. He took the loss as his record fell to 3-6 on the season.

Jedd Gyorko provided the only Friars run. His 14th homer of the year, a solo shot in the fourth, was all the offense the Padres could muster.

The Pirates go for the series sweep Wednesday afternoon at Petco Park.
